For Speakers

Poster Instructions

A partition will be assigned to poster presenters, with dimensions 8 ft tall by 4 ft wide (2.44 m by 1.22 m). Poster presenters will prepare a 4 ft by 4 ft (1.22 m by 1.22 m) to be displayed on the set-up partitions. Any two-dimensional format that fits within a 4 ft by 4 ft space is acceptable. For example, most posters are prepared as one, large sheet and usually brought to the conference rolled up in a tube. Poster presenters are responsible for printing their own poster – T&DI will not have facilities to print your poster. Push pins will be supplied for you to secure your poster to the partition. Viewers should be able to read your poster from a 3 ft (1 m) distance. A minimum font size of 20 points is recommended (larger is better). Remember that this should apply to your graphics as well, including graph legends and scales. Do not bring a copy of your proceedings paper as your poster.
